Take the Pledge to Get the Tote

Pledge to sustain yourself, sustain the planet.

Mom loves this tagline because it appeals to her sense of helping others. Like she always says, we are all in this together - my actions affect you and vice versa. We can and we will make changes in our lives, not only for our health, but for the health of the planet.

In the spirit of doing the right thing, Earthbound Farm has come up with the Sustain Yourself, Sustain the Planet Pledge. Sun icons are displayed in a very pretty kitchen and by clicking on each icon, you learn about ways to sustain yourself and the planet. For example, when you click on the roll of paper towels, the pledge 'I will choose reusable or recycled instead of disposable' appears. This is the pledge you are agreeing to, along with a checkbox at the top of the pledge for you to check. There are also tips on how to live the pledge and facts on the difference this pledge will make in the world.

After clicking on and agreeing to the each pledge that you are going to make in your life, simply click the submit my pledge link. You can print out your choices as a reminder of your pledge. Sometimes we need to be reminded about the things we are trying to do to make a difference. It's like taking reusable bags to the store. In the beginning when you pledge to do this, sometimes you forget. After a while, taking the bags becomes second nature and you never forget again (the trick to not forgetting is to leave them in the car).

If you are one of the first 10,000 people to take the pledge each week in April, you'll win a beautiful Earthbound Farm reusable shopping tote. How cool is that? No more excuses for not having a reusable bag ever again. So what are you waiting for? Take the pledge today at

YAY! Thanks for this link!

Mom just pledged to do everything except compost (I don't think our HOA allows it...and I would eat it!) and is excited for her new bag.

Maybe the jacklegs at WalMart will get a clue about what to do with it! HAHAHAA!

Happy Monday dude!

Hey Salinger Dude -
Mom and Dad are new to composting and while I love to eat everything, they are very careful to keep me out of it.
I hope the WalMart jacklegs get with the program so your mom doesn't have to yell at them.
Let's post pics of our new bags when we get them, okay?

Hey Stubby Buddy...
Have your mom email us...she has a question for you!

We WILL post pics of the bag when we get it. Mom has a purple one from these people too...and their arugala is fabulous! :-)

Pugsley - You need to get your family to go green. It is very important that we all do our part to help and protect the planet. When you get this bag please tell your mom to use it at the store. No more plastic - yuk!

Salinger - Tell your mom that I just emailed her. I can't wait to read what she has to ask me! Stubby xoxo
